Pakistan: Muslims Kill 14 Christians Wound 78 In Twin Church Bombings

(Reuters) – Bombs outside two churches in the Pakistani city of Lahore killed 14 people and wounded nearly 80 during Sunday services, and witnesses said quick action by a security guard prevented many more deaths.

A Pakistani Taliban splinter group claimed responsibility.

Islamist militants in Pakistan have attacked Christians and other religious minorities often over the last decade or more.

Many Christians, who make up less than two percent of Pakistan’s population of more than 180 million, accuse the government of doing little to protect them, saying politicians are quick to offer condolences after an attack but slow to act to improve security.

Sunday’s blasts occurred minutes apart in a majority Christian suburb of the eastern city. Police said it seemed they targeted two churches, one Catholic and one Protestant, that are very close to each other.

    I’m sure the Toronto Star will blame right wing groups and anti-abortion activists.

    • Oh yea, this has white supremacist written all over it.

        Its reported today that the Pope has spoken out against the persecution of Christians. I’m sure Harooooon in his rant today would include him as part of the terrorist threat posed by Christians and Jews.

    As posted in the article:
    Yes, the “religion of peace” at it again. Doesn’t matter what they proclaim. Muslims and their islamic “religion” only preaches death and hatred. A vile, disgusting cult that follows the “teachings” from a rag called the koran which is being followed right here in Canada.

    Terrorist plots, disgusting crowds vilifying other religions, cowering behind the human rights acts and accusing everyone else of being racist. This from a cancer that continues to demonize the Jews, Christians, Buddhists because they are not muslims while leeching off public assistance while their kind blow up churches, behead children in other parts of the world.

    This violence will soon become the norm in the West because our gutless politicians won’t do what is right.

    • We have to make the mater of Muslim immigration an election issue, in a way Harper may have succeeded in doing so already with the Niqab matter.

      People are smart enough to understand to understand that Justin and Mulcair will go out of their way to coddle Islamists.

      I hope.

        The ones smart enough already would not have voted for those two. In a way this could help the left as they can use it to motivate the idiots to put down the bong long enough to vote

    Why are we still giving tax dollars to this 3rd world cesspool that is totally opposed to everything we stand for? If that idiot harper had any balls he would just tell these dumps “screw you the money tap is cut off and we aren’t taking anymore of your dark age misogynist terrorist citizens as immigrants”.
